Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton – Large Wet-Dry Lift Station
The Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton needed this large wet-dry wastewater lift station to replace an existing system to allow the construction of new enlisted quarters. The new lift station included triplex dry-pit pumps to handle super-high flows of sewage from the facilities. An 8’ diameter precast concrete sump collects the sewage. Suction lines connect the sump to a 200-square-foot rectangular dry pit where the pumps, flow meter, and valve assembly are located. This lift station also includes an upstream grinder pit with a Macho Monster sewage grinder to pulverize solids into passable sizes.

Why They Chose Romtec Utilities
When Harper Construction won the design-build contract for bachelor’s enlisted quarters at Camp Pendleton, it contacted Romtec Utilities to provide the lift station replacement. Working directly with Harper Construction and the engineering corps at Camp Pendleton, Romtec Utilities proposed a submersible lift station design for the replacement. This design was changed to include a meter vault, a grinder vault, and an odor control system. The added components led Camp Pendleton and Harper Construction to request an alternate design with a wet-dry configuration. Romtec Utilities provided new designs for a sophisticated wet-dry wastewater lift station. The wet-dry configuration was not as economical, but for Camp Pendleton and Harper Construction to advantages for maintenance, ease of use, and sophistication was better aligned to their goals and preferences.
